Q. Our office invited clients and all of the workers to a party to celebrate the company’s anniversary – it sounded great until I found out we are supposed to work doing things like checking coats, etc. And of course, it’s all gratis – the dinner is our only pay. Is this fair?
A. Sounds like the party is more for clients than for employees, but then again – without clients there are no employees.
Maybe you can re-frame your fairness concern.
